He was a good friend of one of my bros. Family was notified that remains were found. He left behind 4 kids, I think.

This year has been rough so far in the Hornet community.

Eeyore was an all around good dude. I know the Rats/AWCF are also setting something up but there is a link on that page to another memorial fund that supports his family.

Fair winds and following seas brother.
